    Please read, read, and then read some more.

    Then download OpenOffice for free. Then the next time you are tempted to post, paste it in office first and have your spelling checked. Make it easy on the poor reader.

    Only be a necromancer to a post when you have something of real value to add.

    To do with WW2 close combat as in Fairbarn's original and Castari's more up to date similar stuff I assume that most people know about the American guy Captain Chris and his WW2 combat course?

Applegate also taught knife combat for WWII, I believe John Styer was one of either his students or helped him develope the knife stuff, but Styer's book "Cold Steel" is still being published and sold. A lot of it seems to be built on western fencing. Lot's of blade forward and lunging riposte style strikes.

    I gotta admit though the clip of them all standing in a line in those masks while throwing palm strikes up reminds me of something you'd see in an 80's music video. Pretty funny.
    It does look funny but if you ever get on the wrong end of the 'chin jab' it takes the back of your head straight to the ground at speed.
    There is no defence on the way past loss of balance and the normal result is fractured skull to the rear which normally results in a quick death.
    It is so powerfull that training with a partner including the chin jab is NOT recommended by any person.
    Loses it's laughability a bit now doesn't it.

    This was back when they thought they could wean soldiers from their need for water by denying it. They learned in the Mojave that this was not true and had to bring in air conditioned trucks to save the soldiers who passed out from dehydration.
